    We actually don't advise stinging like a bee since they die after they sting someone once, instead, sting like a wasp. The point is, we are in search of the best but we are picky and not ready to settle for anyone we don't consider to be the top in their field! If you have a suggestion of someone you think should be on this list, please let us know.
